St Laurence’s Larder at the Cuckoo Fair 2019 
A very big thank you to everyone who played a part in yet another successful day at  
St Laurence’s Larder at the Cuckoo Fair. 
It was a huge team effort and we were very grateful for all the help we received from members of the congregation and the wider village as well as friends and family, some visiting from many miles away.  
So, WELL DONE and THANK YOU to everyone who: 
• made or provided food or money 
• made telephone calls or persuaded friends or family to help 
• prepared flower arrangements for the tables 
• prepared and served food – both outside on the bacon rolls and in the hall 
• made tea and coffee and kept the hot water flowing 
• cleared tables, washed and dried up and collected money 
• helped with getting the hall ready and clearing up at the end. 
The quality of the donated food was excellent as always – and we had lots of praise from visitors to the Larder.  
Indeed, thanks must also go to our valued customers, many of whom come back to us year after year! 
We raised a wonderful sum which will go towards the upkeep of our beautiful parish church. As usual, we will be donating 10% of the profits to the Cuckoo Fair Committee to help continue their work. 
It may have been hard work, but it was also a very happy day of Christian fellowship.  
If you were not there you really did miss out – but there is always next year! 
Judy Gimson & Sue Joseph 
Coffee and Company 
Sadly we shall no longer be meeting for coffee on Monday mornings. Over the years we have been very pleased  
to welcome regular attenders and occasional visitors, but as numbers have been falling for some time now  
we have reluctantly decided to close. 
We are grateful to those who have supported us for a long time. 
St Laurence Church will continue to be open on a daily basis, in daylight hours, for anyone who wants to come and look round. 
St Laurence Church is now on Facebook!
